National Aviary Pittsburgh

700 Arch Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15212


The National Aviary is the nation’s only indoor nonprofit bird zoo, with over 600 birds from over 200 species, many of which are threatened and endangered.  There is a special emphasis on birds from the rain forest or other wetland areas, but every continent is represented.  The Aviary holds special events, family camps and even Photo Safaris on Saturdays.  There is something for everyone!

153 W Carson St, Pittsburgh, PA 15219


Opening on May 8, 1870, the Mon Incline became the first passenger incline and has been in continual operation since.  It is the oldest and steepest incline in the United States.  Today, it conveniently connects the attractions at Station Square with the overlooks on Grandview Ave. in Mt. Washington and is therefore a prominent tourist attraction in of itself!

Carnegie Science Center, Pittsburgh

1 Allegheny Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15212


Fun & educational, and never the same experience twice, the Science Center is a favorite for kids and adults alike.  There are always new, hands-on exhibits to explore, as well as creative theater shows located throughout the 5 story building.  Be sure to check out a planetarium show or an Omnimax movie as well!  Within walking distance, the affiliated “SportsWorks” provides physical challenges and active fun along the same lines.

Duquesne Incline Pittsburgh

1197 W Carson St., Pittsburgh, PA 15219


The more westerly of the Mt. Washington inclines, the Duquesne Incline is itself a working museum with a long history.  It still uses the original 1877 cable cars to traverse up and down the hillside!  A trip on the incline is a must for visitors, and the Duquesne incline in particular is close to many restaurants on Mt. Washington.  And of course, there’s always the great view of the Golden Triangle and surrounding areas from the overlooks!

Gateway Clipper Fleet, Pittsburgh

360 W Station Square Dr., Pittsburgh, PA 15219


Looking for fun on the three rivers?  The Gateway Clipper Fleet offers dozens of types of cruises – dining, dancing and sightseeing tours among them.  It also offers shuttle service for Steeler games and other events.  It definitely is a great way to see the city from a unique vantage point.

Pittsburgh History Center

1212 Smallman St., Pittsburgh, PA 15222


Officially known as the “Senator John Heinz Pittsburgh Regional History Center”, the History Center is one of the coolest attractions in the area and operates as both a museum and research facility.  It is housed in a converted 160,000 sf warehouse.  The exhibits are locally based, well done and in depth; plan to spend a whole day here.
